Bringing More Affordable Housing to Mississauga: Inclusionary Zoning Update and Statutory Public Meeting

City building | May 17, 2022

On Monday, May 30, staff will present the City’s draft policies to implement inclusionary zoning. Inclusionary zoning is a tool that can help to increase the supply of affordable housing in Mississauga by requiring that new developments include affordable housing units. Currently, inclusionary zoning is only allowed to be used in major transit station areas or other areas directed by the Government of Ontario.

During the meeting, staff will provide an update and take feedback on:

  • Size and type of projects where inclusionary zoning will apply
  • Percentage of affordable units required
  • Areas where inclusionary zoning will be used in the City
  • Amount of time units must remain affordable
  • Implementation timeframe

Housing affordability is a major issue in Mississauga and the wider GTA. Inclusionary zoning is an important tool the City can use to protect and grow the affordable housing supply.
